    I must have known that Elgar's Ghost was tracking Roussel at the moment and that must be why I reached for this set this morning. Symphonies 1 and 3:

    Am I right in feeling that these works (or at least the last two) were more frequently played 50 years ago than now? Certainly, many big name conductors had them in their repertoires. I really enjoy them anyway and cannot understand how they could get neglected.

    Eduard Tubin: Symphony No.2 in B minor, the "Legendary". Neeme Järvi, Swedish RSO

    Not my favorite Tubin symphony but I am enjoying it more than on last listen.

    You might want to listen to the Kurtag again. It is an early work and somewhat conventional but it packs quite a lot into a short piece. Not great but certainly worthwhile.

    Scriabin: Piano Sonata No. 3 & Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition

    Alessio Bax (piano)

    he shows himself a young aristocrat of the keyboard intent on purely musical ends. The disc is well recorded and lavishly presented.

    Mussorgsky - Sunless / Songs and Dances of Death

    Marjana Lipovsek - Mezzo-Soprano

    Graham Johnson - Piano

    Recorded 1994

    Mussorgsky's last two shadowy song cycles, miles away from the sparkling fare composed by his French and German contemporaries. This particular recording is highly recommended, both the singing and playing are top drawer.
